Shining Sea Bike Path
Offering beautiful vistas along an old rail bed route, the Bike Path passes sandy beaches, ocean harbors, salt water marshes, kettle hole ponds and quiet woodlands en route to Woods Hole. The 3.3- mile (5.25-km) Path is flat and paved, making it a popular byway for walking, jogging and rollerblading in addition to biking. A small parking area is located across the street from the beginning of the trail on Locust Street & Woods Hole Road.

*Please Note. Pedestrians, bicycles, and vehicles must obey all traffic control devices. Pedestrians have the right-of-way at marked crosswalks, in intersections, and on sidewalks extending across a service drive, building entrance, or driveway. Pedestrians should not leave the curb or their place of safety and walk or run into the path of a vehicle that is so close that it is impossible for the driver to yield. Pedestrians may cross an intersection diagonally where permitted by special pavement marking. Pedestrians crossing a street at any point other than within a marked crosswalk at an intersection should yield the right-of-way to all vehicles.
